New Senior Vice Chancellor Finance & Administration

Dear UCSF Community,

I am pleased to announce that Erin Gore will join us early next year as our new senior vice chancellor of Finance and Administration.

Erin is a seasoned financial executive who joins us from Wells Fargo, where she is executive vice president of Growth Initiatives, Strategy & Communication, and previously led the Higher Education and Not for Profit division.

Previously, she served as UC Berkeley’s associate vice chancellor of Planning and Budget and chief financial officer from 2009-2014. During her tenure there, she created UC Berkeley’s first campuswide budget plan and oversaw major building projects, as well as new efforts to simplify financial aid processes, create data systems, and increase aid for first-generation students. She received a BA in political science from UCLA and an MPA in economic policy from Columbia University School of International and Public Affairs.

In her new role, Erin will join my executive team and cabinet, and will provide strategic leadership and guidance to the UCSF enterprise across many areas that directly affect our performance. She will be responsible for UCSF’s operating budget of approximately $8 billion and for leading a service organization with an annual budget of $435 million and 1,800 full time employees.

Throughout her career, Erin has guided large-scale changes in administration, technology, finance, and staffing for a range of employers, including the City of New York. You can read more about her on UCSF.edu.

Many thanks to the search committee, led by Executive Vice Chancellor and Provost Dan Lowenstein, for their excellent work and dedication. Please join me in welcoming Erin to UCSF.

Sincerely,

Sam Hawgood, MBBS
